Golf Tournament

A Premier Golf Experience

“Colonel P.” Memorial Golf Tournament

The Annual “Colonel P.” Memorial Golf Tournament honors Colonel Michael Pennefather (affectionately known as “Colonel P.”), Husband, Father, Teacher, Coach and Servant of God. After serving in the Air Force “Colonel P.” loved teaching and coaching students at Seton School. He also coached several AAU championship basketball teams. He had a profound impact on many youths – changing their lives because he cared for them. He dispensed wisdom. He dispensed love. A devout Catholic, he taught moral lessons but did it with the humility and humor that were his hallmarks. Diagnosed with cancer at age 60 with only three months to live, he taught the Seton community “Trustful Surrender” to God’s will. When Colonel P. died in June 1998, it was evident he had affected many lives. Over 900 people attended his funeral. His wife Jane and seven children carry on his legacy of faith through teaching, raising Catholic families, and serving the Church in religious life.

Why support Seton through our annual golf tournament?

The focus of this year’s fundraising efforts will be the ongoing upgrade to the school’s gymnasium. We’ll start by replacing the lighting. Lights in the gymnasium (which serves many purposes besides sports) are the original equipment, now 25 years old and are dimmer, inefficient, and costly to operate compared to today’s high intensity LED lighting equipment.

Last year’s tournament funds were used to add a long-needed second gymnasium scoreboard and to help pay for our Lady Conquistador basketball team’s Final Four State title trip to Richmond.

God Bless

 

 

How can I support this good cause?

Golfers come enjoy a premiere golf experience along with a ton of fun contests, the camraderie, luncheon, raffle prizes, and contest prizes. And our entry fees have not changed in years.

Sponsors, there are numerous opportunities at all levels to show your support for the Athletic Program of the area’s only 3-time Top 50 Catholic High School in the Nation, and all are tax-deductible.

Donors, interested in supporting the Seton Athletic Department somehow but not interested in golf? That’s OK. Consider sponsoring a teacher or priest, or make a tax deductible donation.

This year the golf tournament was held on October 4 at Bull Run Golf Club. God blessed us with the perfect day and 121 golfers enjoyed a premiere golf experience along with numerous fun contests, camaraderie, luncheon, raffle prizes and contest prizes. The Seton Conquistadors Athletic Program faces considerable day-to-day no-frills operating expenses.  This tournament directly supports those expenses and provides a modest Colonel P. Memorial Scholarship to two worthy graduating student-athletics. The 2017 scholarship winners were Mike Byers and Jane Pennefather, who were also recognized by Catholic Athletics for Christ for their athletic achievement and service to the Church. As a result of last year’s tournament proceeds Seton Boosters was able to purchase a low mileage good quality used activity bus for sports team’s transportation and school needs.
